Black Friday Creep: The Backlash Begins
CNBC.com | November 11, 2011 | 01:41 PM EST

Retailers will claim they're only trying to serve the consumer as they deck their halls earlier and earlier each year, and begin Black Friday sales at earlier start times, but some consumers seem to be saying, "Enough Already" to Christmas Creep .

At least that's the message I'm getting from all the reaction to Nordstrom's "one holiday at a time" policy.

The policy is not new, but on social media sites such as Facebook, the retailer is getting newfound attention for it.

Many people are posting images of Nordstrom signs that explain why the company doesn't roll out its holiday trim until after Thanksgiving day. Some of the images, which are popping up in Facebook feeds and in blogs , are even from past years, judging from the dates mentioned on the signs.

One says: "Happiness is celebrating one holiday at a time. That's why you won't find any holiday trim in our stores until after Thanksgiving day. So relax. Reminisce. Enjoy the day as we will — with family and friends. Then when Friday, November 25 rolls around feel free to stop by for a bit of good cheer. It's then we'll be decked in our holiday finery — and eager to welcome the season with you."
